Social media has changed my life – this might sound sensationalist but it’s true. OK, so I still have the same family and the same job, but as I said in my last post I have connected with a lot of wonderful people and learned many things that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t use social media. And I’m not the only one. There are a lot of people who feel the same as me, but for a variety of different reasons and many of these reasons being far more interesting than mine.
Last month, as part of Plymouth Twestival, we asked over twenty Twitter users in Plymouth what benefits they’ve experienced from using Twitter, and how it has impacted their lives. We then put all of their responses into an e-book so we could share their stories, and we are really pleased with the results. Stories are incredibly powerful, so we wanted to use them to show people who are not on Twitter what they are missing.
In this e-book there are stories of how Twitter has helped people start businesses, relocate to a new city, find news stories to broadcast, meet new people, aid personal development, find customers, and much more. For anyone we manage to persuade to hop onto Twitter, we have also added some useful tips for new users.
If you are into social media, or are considering using social media, this would be a really good read for you, and the best part is its completely free! Please feel free to share it with friends you are encouraging to use Twitter too.
Anyway, enough of me telling you about it, download the stories here to see how brilliant they are…
Once you’ve finished, I’d also love to hear your social media stories, so tell me below…How has social media changed your lives?
